Don't know if you want to go that far north but I was stationed at Plattsburgh in the Air Force in the late 80's. That's in the north east corner. The area on Hwy 9 and 9N around Lake Placid and Whiteface Mt. is beautiful and would make for a nice bike ride. Curvy mountain road that runs along side a creek.
